There is a piece of plywood bolted down between the 2 seats. This may be more work than I am willing to do and the condition doesn't look that great, but I still may call them and go and check it out. Thanks for keeping an eye out for me. I am willing to pay a $80 CAD finders fee for any lead that results in my purchasing an 80's factory front dinnette model. It's getting hot!!!!
Hi, Rodre-

Are you sure about that?
That doesn't look like a piece of plywood to me- it looks like a tabletop.
Too bad the angle is too high to see if there's a hinge, which may be all it lacks...
They might have modified it for the bunk setup- funny that the back cushion isn't hinged, if it's original...
Let us know what you see if you do go and look!

Francesca

Yup, I am pretty sure, but I have been wrong before. I'll try and see if I can get out to take a look at it. I think from that angle we would be able to see the table leg if it had one. Also, if they made it into a front bunk model they did a pretty good job of copying the gaucho back/top bunk. Sadley I have spent hour and hours studying photos of Trilliums, singling out the front dinette model, getting to know my prey...

This was my hundredth post.

I am located in Vancouver BC Canada, but am willing to travel for the right one. Thanks!

I am still looking for the elusive, last off the assembly line, 1984, one owner, never used, garage kept, orange stripe and logos, deluxe model, original condition, Trillium with the front dinette. I know there has got to be one out there waiting for me to come and pamper it for the next 30 years. I have travelled far and wide and have not seen one that fits the bill.

I saw one today that was in so-so condition, in need of a full restore, including removing a fair amount of silicone. It also needed some gel coat work on the roof as the sun had baked cracks into it. The intriguing thing about this one, the one thing that tempted me to buy it, was that it had a factory coleman air conditioner on the roof, and it was definitely factory. I could tell by the interior and exterior moldings and the way they beefed up the support for the roof - it had to be done during manufacturing. The seller wanted too much for it, seeing as how it needed gel coat work, and it would not fit in my garage with the A/C on the roof, so I had to abandon it - I think.

Bumping up my post with this tid bit of info - c'mon, someone throw a dog a bone.

Rod, you should come out the trailer meet this week-end near Misson as we currently have 6 Trilliums coming (suspect at least one more) and I seem to recall from past meets that at least one of those trailers had a front dinette (dont hold me to it being one of the ones coming again though) - the trailer tours are on Saturday morning if its there you could always make them an offer they cant refuse

Did you see the one listed on fiberglass rv 4 sale but it is in Arizona so maybe too far - no pictures though.
